    Images in Sig

    As you can see in my sig, i tried to use an image. If i remember right i saw the [img] tag in sigs is disabled, are all images in sigs disabled? Just curious, thanks

    Since IMG tags and HTML tags are both disabled, the only graphics you're going to get in sigs are smilies, sorry.

    Doesn't hurt our bandwidth at all (since they're hosted offsite), but sig images are usually a) huge or b) not worksafe.

    me and kermi had this discussion when the board was upgraded. html/img tags can be easily exploited with bad code and such so its also a security risk to enable them

    As a general observation, it seems slightly lame to have a bunch of poo in the sig (like blinking stuff) and then have a one line post. I find it hard to sort through posts like that. Text is cool.

    still dont get that, most of you who think that way must stay isolated from other forums i assume then right lol? Just since i have yet to see a forum with images blocked, usually its phpbb forums, but some here and there are vb(least out of the 20 or so i visit, and the 100 or so iv seen).

    So either you stay isolated from other forums or you must have a counseling to deal with it lol
